Nada is a 43-year-old married woman and mother of three dependent children.
Nada has run a tailoring business from her home for over twenty-five years and she has been able, during this period, to support her husband with the family income. She offers all sewing services in addition to a clothes repair service.
Nada has already taken advantage of her first loan from Kiva and she's very pleased with her decision to take a loan from Ameen because she was able to expand her business. She's a very punctual client who has repaid her loan on time.
Today, Nada is asking for a new loan of $1,200 to buy more textiles to satisfy the demands of her customers.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
